Overall reliability

Lots of space, but reliability poor

We wanted to replace a Daihatsu Fourtrak and Mitsubishi Colt with one car, and this seemed to fit the bill.
The 1.6 diesel manual is economical, there is lots of space and you sit high for a good view out.
BUT reliability is an issue: the tyre pressure monitor displays constantly, and the gearbox / clutch is now juddering. And this at only 32,000 miles.
The Colt ran to 120k miles, with only a lightbulb blowing.
Overall, I would say buy new, but not one that is over 3 years old. Mine was Honda approved, but warranty does not cover the clutch DMF.
Disappointed in what should be a great car.
